High School Girls Basketball tipped off their season with their first practice today after school. We are gearing up for a great winter of Lady Tiger Basketball and look forward to seeing our fans in the stands cheering on the Tigers in just a few short weeks!
Our Kindergarten, First, and Second Graders had a special visit from Mrs. Sharon Zoellner today, as she shared her talent of knitting with them. Not only did she share different examples of items she has knitted with us, but she also surprised the students by bringing 138 pairs with her today to gift to each student in grades K-2! Mrs. Zoellner's favorite item to knit are mittens because she "doesn't like kids to have cold hands." She has been knitting for 60 years and has made 1,350 pairs of mittens. One mitten pair takes around 6 hours to knit, so she has been a very busy lady!! Thank you for sharing your special talent with us! The students will treasure this gift always, but especially on those cold and wintery days ahead!
This Week in Tiger Sports: Monday, November 20th: - JH Girls Basketball vs. Britton-Hecla (8th grade only @ 6:30) Happy Thanksgiving, Tiger Nation!

Right after school on Thursday November 9 in the wrestling room you can have an opportunity to ask some of the wrestlers and coaches questions and we can show you what a small sample of what practice will be like to see if this is something you may like to try. There will be a few games and fun to be had!! Yes girls this is also for you. Girls wrestling is the fastest growing high school sport in the nation! Hope to see you this Thursday at 3:30!! Come join the Tiger wrestling family!!!
